“Diving on wrecks means diving in the past – and it is always related with a certain thrill…”It is an unbelievable experience to see a big ship from a bird’s perspective and to glide towards the captain’s bridge. But there are also tragedies related to wrecks.Diving on wrecks is exciting and there are some potential risks too, but with the right training WRECK DIVING will become a great adventure. During the WRECK DIVING SPECIALTY COURSE you will learn where and how to get background information on wrecks, how to locate wrecks and how to prepare for a wreck dive. During the 2 mandatory dives you will apply the correct wreck diving techniques, as well as, evaluate and avoid the potential risks while diving on wrecks.
